Today Guilherme Paulus can be able to take his children to any destination or college they want thanks to the significant success he has achieved as an entrepreneur in the Brazilian tourism industry. Growing up, however, was very different as he did not come from a wealthy background. Guilherme Paulus was, in fact, unable to pursue his dream of pursuing medicine as his parents could not afford it. This would propel him to become an entrepreneur, and it is exactly what he has done more than forty years later.
Guilherme Paulus first joined the world of business when he established CVC. His was a vision of one day taking over the tour industry. He was determined to grow the company from an idea in his head to something tangible and of significant value. This dream was made possible by pure tenacity at times when there was not much going on in the said industry. After several years of struggling CVC would finally pick up and as today he gives the impressive numbers the group keeps posting you can’t help but feel envious.
During the Top Seller Event where he was a guest speaker, he was in a position to provide some numbers that included 9,086 travel agents some of these are located in the 1,164 stores run by the company. These are spread out in all the states having a presence in at least 456 cities. These levels of investment and expansion have been made possible by constantly plowing back profits and an aggressive growth strategy according to bloomberg.com. These travel agencies were able to bring CVC 3,978,018 passengers in 2016. This number was expected to grow the following year given the promising start they had and the expanding tourism sector, and as of October 2017, CVC had already recorded 3,681,624 passengers already catered to. \
The continued growth of CVC was further enabled by Carlyle, which bought a controlling stake in 2009. They came in with enough money and expertise to help grow the company to greater heights. Their entry into the organization could not have been better placed as at the time Guilherme Paulus was eyeing bigger growth given the scheduled world cup and summer Olympics that were slated to take place in Brazil in 2014 and 2016 respectively. This boost in the capital has been essential as CVC was recently able to acquire one of its smaller competitors Experimento for about 4.3 million dollars. This buy out was meant to cement its position as market leader.
